All im saying is how about you get a suit which looks good on you and worry about the formality of it later?  For example a great suit with a nice shirt, unbuttoned top button and no tie looks a lot less formal regardless of the quality or nature of the suit. Slickness (in a manner that may erode credibility and remind people of gordon gecko) is always going to come from how you wear it and what you wear it with - rather than the suit itself (for the most part).

 

Maybe a suit isn't for you yet, a sportscoat with the right trousers and shirt can still look professional without being too formal.

Hmmm, I'll still have a chat with the guys at the SuitShop and see what they say. Of course they'll want to sell me a suit. I have not worn a suit since my 20s, when I worked as an Accountant. Nowadays in I.T. and glad to work around more relaxed environments.  But still in my 40s and think I need to get back into the suit thing without the formality and have it feel as normal as jeans and a white t-shirt on Saturdays. 

 

Thanks for the lengthy response. I appreciate it.

No wonder the courts take forever with no real deadlines.

So " You must have the cut and paste from internet essay in by Friday 11th @ COB" actually means "Hey kids you are Gen x/y/z or whatever so take your own sweet time- we certainly wouldn't bully/dis/mark you down/attack your self esteem by suggesting the deadline means something"

Haven't you heard? Students are customers now! And the customer is always right.

I'm a Pareto man - some customers need to be told to f..... off.

It's a bit of a joke what uni has become, all they seem to care about is getting money from International Students.

 

As per this weekend.

 

Had lunch with TBM and Nabil, went to PJs(we were there around 1130, CD), had work, went to a disco, and just studied today.

Is it just me, or is it not possible to cut and paste from Andrew's blog?

Sunday sun is out so change sheets put washing on then gym to pound crap and last nights Pinot out of system. Have lost 20kg since September, wonder if it's due to the Mad Monk? Or intensive training and becoming part of Quantified Self Brigade?

Put washing out put more washing on and Brad Mehladu Toyoko solo CD. Read Saturday papers not much not even much too go off at in the Oz. What is world coming too?

Late afternoon flick The Geand Budapest
Hotel visually interesting and highly enjoyable. Then dinner at Chez Frederic in Braddon post hipster cuisine with disposable plates and cultery, still good food and prices, good Pinot. Recommended to fellow Camberrians.

Make it home before rain and bring last of washing in, watch news swear at Fat Bastard, read, check mail, SF and wait for Jack English.

Whenever some prick on a clothing forum cites Veblen I reach for my AK47. He's overated and a simplistic I inner city tenured vgreenie.

I hear you, my semester has been excessively work heavy due to poor lecturers and too many assessments.

Everything I know about Veblen I learnt from clothing forums.

Today I went antique shopping. Almost bought a pair of jade and silver cufflinks, and another pair of Jemsen cufflinks that caught my eye until I saw the price tag.

I went home with a bottle of vintage perfume, in box, from 1923. A lovely thing.

For anyone interested I was at Harrolds in Sydney the other day and they have tailors coming from Brioni for a couple of days next month. I think it's a regular thing and they will obviously be in Melbourne to (it being the flagship store).

Pretty sure the only person in this forum with enough disposable income for this sort of thing is Foxhound, the rest of us are small-timers.
